One of the things that really keeps me going is people’s responses to Super Sized Cycles. Usually there is a slightly startled look, and then the big smile when they catch on. “Of course,” they say, “That’s an awesome idea!” The idea of big people riding bikes certainly shouldn’t be original, but it takes a while to make it mainstream. Actually, I’ve been working on this company for over 2 years, and I still feel like it’s a mini micro-business. We’re getting there, though, and the feedback I get from my customers and potential customers keeps me going.
Yes, Super Sized Cycles is going through some growing pains and there is definite room for improvement. With our commitment to quality, excellent customer service and authenticity, we find that most of our customers are willing to accept the (proverbial) bumps in the road. I want to share a couple of thoughts from recent notes with customers:
- I ran across your add in the journal for the American Association of Diabetes Educators. As a diabetes educator, I am always on the look out for information to share with my patients to help find ways they can safely exercise. Your website is wonderful. I will pass this info on…Thank you for all you are doing!
- Hello Joan! I am so thrilled to find this site through OAC (Obesity Action Coalition). What an incredible link! I have wished for many years that I could ride a bike again and have tried to find somewhere in
God Bless You for having the drive and moxy to do something monumental like this for yourself and ultimately – others. What a great story!
In future blogs I’ll share more stories, and I invite you to tell your story, too. We’re all in this together, and the way out is through!
